We have a busy month ahead of us in September. Next week we will be filming over in the Twin Bridges area again, the next week Mike heads to the Fly Fishing Retailers Show in Denver while I do some freelance work in N. Dakota, and then the following week, we'll be filming with Mark Petitjean in Bozeman. Then its straight back into the "edit bay" where the real work starts. I'll try to put up some photos from the shoots.
We'll also be bringing some new aspects to the site (if we stay on schedule) and running at least one more contest.
Oh yeah, and we'll continue posting new patterns every week.
Well, I haven't posted here for awhile because I've been buckling down editing and compressing the last of the patterns from April's Eastern Idaho Fly expo and converting vids for DVD and download. I've also been editing a couple of last minute shorts for the Denver show in September and we'll be shooting for another DVD over on the Madison on Wednesday through Friday. Its a busy summer and I have had little to no time to hit the water yet. I might have to take some evening time this week. I'm also curious to see if folks are tying less during the summer or if you increase the amount you do and for what reasons. Because you are inspired by the fact that you get to fish your patterns? Because you need to refill your fly boxes? Other? Drop us a line in the comments section and let us know your thoughts. In the mean time, check out Boots Allen's Brown Drake Emerger pattern for this week.
Take care and happy tying.
We've all heard how important it is to back up your computer on a regular basis but nothing puts your heart in your throat than waking up in the morning and your computer is dead. I know. It happened to me today. Luckily for me, I store my crucial data (i.e. our footage) on external drives (I think we have something like 20 terabytes of storage and that's almost filled) that I back up regularly and I'm able to limp along and make this week's pattern. However, I've lost access to the applications I use so I can't edit a photo for the posterframe this week. Sorry Dan; I'll put it up when I get things working again. Anyway, its not the end of the world and I should be back up to full speed in a couple of weeks. In the mean time, please bear with us. We should still be able to make our weekly posts so please keep checking back.
Welcome to our new blog! If you are a regular reader you've already noticed our new look and feel. This is hopefully just the beginning of the new stuff we add to our site. This blog is the second step. Here we'll post news on what we are working on, new products, and any contests we run. As a small business, we are constantly overworked and underfished so we can't guarantee and set schedule on this blog like we can on the weekly patterns we post but please feel free to subscribe to our RSS feed (on the right). In the next few months, we hope to add a store but more importantly, we hope to have an additional blog that will focus on conservation related videos and any other non-tying fishing videos. Again, we're pretty busy this summer so please keep checking back.
Ok. So now for a few things news items.
Mike is currently in Bolivia shooting a recce for a possible film down there and doing some fishing. I'm currently neck deep in editing new patterns for the web and for a couple of DVD's.
